'E take pleasure in again presenting to our patrons, both
past and prospective, our New Annual Catalogue and price
list and trust we may receive a continuance of their favors
by sending out such trees and plants as may meet their approval.
The articles in the following list in this Catalogue will be fur-
nished at the annexed prices only when the quantities specified are
taken. These prices are intended for a reasonable assortment of
varieties. When parties order a long list of only one or two trees
or plants of a kind, for such bills we cannot allow them the price of
50 or 100 rates. When parties order specific varieties we will follow
their instructions so far as practicable. But as it often occurs that
we have run out of certain varieties, or may not have of the age and
size ordered, we reserve the right to substitute in such cases othor
varieties equally good, unless positively instructed not to do's}.
All orders should be made in a seperate list, and not mixed up with
the body of the letter. Any error of ours in filling orders will be
cheerfully rectified on receiving notice, provided such notice is
given on receipt of goods.

DIRECTIONS FOR TRANSPLANTING.
■ my time iii tin.' winter when the soil is moist and will work
up loose nml Bne; never plant trees or vines when the ground Is
heavy and soggy, as ihc soil will bake and retard growth.
looted the soil or plot, it should be well plowed in
the full plow devii and well. If the soil is rich and new, no ma-
nur iv ; but if it is not it willbi • my to make it so
from the start, by giving a good application of well rotted stable
manure, and work thoroughly Into the soil. We are aware that the
i>l I eu-tom was to dig a hole for the tree and put the manure into
this, but our experience has shown that the feeding roots soon get
beyond this anil fail to receive as much benefit as they should. Sur-
faee manure well worked into the soil furnishes the food iu the best
iti"U for the largest number of feeding roots to reach and be
Ited by it.
Make out some time ahead a list of what you want. Get good
varieties, and do Dot l"t a mistaken notion ol economy induce you
lect poor varieties simply because they cost a few cents less on
the tree. Good trees of good varieties cannot be raised for nothing,
and it always pays to give a little more and get the best. Secure a
selection that will give you fruit all the year round. This can be
done if you are careful in seleting your varieties of fruit. There
are so many claimants for the best, and such close competition
among dealers, that il is almost impossible for nurserymen to agree
as to the besl varieties of fruit. We of course have our opinion
and freely give it. Then, again, what we might consider the bestin
this section and iu one kind of soil, would not pass as among the
host in another section on a different soil. Henee, in securing a
variety it is best to have some knowledge of what has done the best
in your immediate location, if possible.
Jn setting out, take some pains to have the trees in as straight a
line as possible. The best device to aid in doing this. work in the
easiest way is to have a board six inches wide, one inch thick, and
four feet long: cut a notch in the center, and equal distances from
this; in each cud bore a good sized hole; have two pins that will
lit these holes easily, reach into the ground deep enough to hold it
steady. Mark off the places where the trees are to stand, put the
notch exactly where the tree is to stand, fasten with one pin and
turn the plank around out of the way ; dig the hole the proper
depth and put in the tree; bring back the plank and fasten in the
original holes; put the tree in the notch and you will have no mis-
take or get the tree out of line. In setting out the trees do not set
too deep. There is as much danger of smothering a tree by setting
too deep as of injuring the roots by setting too shallow. Our plan
is always to set in as deep as the tree stood in the nursery. If the
roots arc in any way dry wet them thoroughly before setting out.
In digging holes place the top soil on one side of the hole, and the
subsoil on the opposite. The holes should be broader than the roots
extend, but not much deeper. Commence filling in with the top
soil, finely pulverized, at the same time observing that every root
is placed in a natural position ; and by all means carefully guarding
against the roots being tangled or matted. The finest and best
earth should be carefully worked among the roots with fingers, fill
every space, and bring every root in contact with it. Set the tree
firm, but leave the surface-filling light and loose. In preparing the
trees for planting cut off the bruised ends of the roots. The best
dug tree loses many of the fibrous roots. Shorten the top to corre-
spond. Don't fail to cut back severely when you transplant; don't
forget that a half root caunot support a whole top.
Never neglect pruning. Trees trained low, protecting their own
trunks from the sun's rays, are less liable to break with the weight
of the fruit, and the fruit is easier gathered. This business of prun-
ing vigorously at the time of setting is generally a very ungrateful
one to the planter, as it injures for a time the appearance of the tree
to an un practiced eye. It should, however, be unhesitatingly per-

The high altitude of California is peculiarly adapted to the culti-
vation of the olive, and I think there are no localities more favora-
ble for its culture than the foothill-?, at an altitude of from 700 to
2,000 feet above the sea level. In fact it has been demonstrated to
a certainty that our high foothill points are equal to the best in the
world for olive culture. "We can with pleasure refer to Dr. Agard's
fine olive orchard on our east, and also Dr. Clark's on our west.
Both are on the highest elevation of our locality, and to see those
thrifty and vigorous trees bending under their weight of olive ber-
ries, without irrigation, is satisfactory evidence that our country is
the home of the olive.
As to varieties, we believe the Picolene is the best in every
respect. It is more easily propagated, tree a rapid grower, bears
very young, and is a constantand good bearer; ripens much earlier
than the old Mission or Spanish olive. It is good for both oil and
pickles. Berries aie not as large as some varieties, but make a rich
oil of line quality.
The old Mission or Spanish olive is good for both oil and pickles.
Fruit larger than the Picolene. It is harder to propagate than some
other varieties, but the tree is hardy and long-lived.
There are some new kinds being introduced of late. We have a
few of them, but have not seen them fruiten enough to judge of
NEVADILLO— One of the finest olives for oil. Imported from
Spain, producing the finest oil of commerce. Price 75 cents to
MANZANILLA — This is Qneen olive of Spain ; berries very large,
fruit fine for pickling and oil. Among the olives of Southern
Spain, especially around Serilla, the Mauzanilla is most highly
prized for pickling. Price, 75 cents to SI 25.

ORANGE AND LEMON TREES.
Orange and lemon trees were very scarce and high last season.
All of the nurseries were drained of all trees that would do to plant,
out, consequently the California trees the coming season are small.

JAFFA— Imported from the city of Joppa, in Syria, a very fine me-
dium Size orange of superior quality; tree neatly thornless.
MANDARIN— A very tine small orange; always brings fancy,
prices ; is called a kid glove varietv.
TANGERINE— Much lik«) the Mandarin, only larger; leaf of tree
is broader, and the fruit is dark red color; generally brings dou-
1 le the price of other oranges.
WASHINGTON NAVEL— The king of oranges; treo a good
grower, with spreading, open top; fruit of uniformly large size,
seedless and best quality ; a special shipper and always brings the
highest price in market.
MEDITERRANEAN SWEET— Tree dwarfish and compact, thick
growing top, which is the greatest fault of this variety; fruit of
good quality and hangs late on the tree.
MALTA BLOOD— Tree dwarfish, but a heavy cropper; as name
indicates, fruit is red pulped or streaked with red ; quality rich
sub acid, of specially rich flavor; good keeper and always sells

The Camphor tree is a rare and beautiful shade and ornamental
tree. It is a moderately rapid grower. It succeeds well on the
coast aud in many localities in the interior. Fortunes might be
made in Camphor plautations. Every family should have one or
more camphor trees on their grounds. They are not only rare and
highly ornameutal, but impart a delightful odor, which is very
healthy. The tree is an evergreen and quite hardy. They can be
successfully transplanted with naked roots, if well cut back, but our

Japanese Tea Plants.
The tea plant can be successfully grown in large portions of this
Stat?. It is not, as most people suppose, a tender plant, but is
quite hardy. It will stand much raorefrost and exposure than the
orange or lemon tree. We think the time is not far distant when
tea growing will be a prominent industry in California. The soil
and climate in very many localities seem to be peculiarly adapted
to its successful cultivation. Especially is this true of our foothill
regions, at an altitude of from GOO to 1,400 feet above the sea level.
Every family (in most parts of the State; could grow their own tea
as easily as they can g.row the common sage plant.

This fruit has baen much neglected simply because we have had
no g tod vari 'ties. The common pomegranate, grown everywhere, is
tast less and poor, unlike our flue new varieties. This fruit has a
great future, for which iu a few years there will be a great demand
in the East, where the fruit cannot be grown. It can be shipped all
over the world. Comes into market as fresh fruit in the winter.
Pomegranates require plenty of water. They do best when grown
as a bush, not as a tree; if pruned hoavily they bear poorly. We
offer three fine new varieties at 50 and 75 cents each.
SPANISH RURi' -New; fruit very flue, large as the largest apple;
eye very small; skin thick, pale yellow, with crimson cheek;
meat of the most magnificent crimson color, highly aromatic, and
very sweet. The Spanish Ruby is a line grower and good bearer;
fruit is a good shipper; ripens shortly before Christmas. It could
bo laid down in New York during the holidays.
PAPER-SHELL— This new variety has very fine qualities; thin
skin; I he skin separating the pulp is also very thin, like tissue
paper ; for home consumption this variety is valuable : not good
to ship; good bearer, but more dwarfish tnan the Spanish Ruby.
HERMOSILLO— This variety is from Mexico, where it is considered
one of the finest fruits and the best pomegranate known.

Planting fruit trees is a matter that one cannot afford to delay a
single season. The purchase of a piano, carriage or any other arti-
cle of furniture can. with safety, be postponed, as they are to be
had complete at any time. But trees require several year- to come
into full bearing, and eaeli year's delay in planting is an actual
loss. Choice fruit will do more to enhance profits of the farm, add
to the health, comfort and happiness of the family, beauty and sell-
ing value to a country home than anything else that can lie ob-

kinds for your soil and .climate, and those true to name. Do not
run any risk. Yon can better afford to pay one dollar for every
tree, and know what you get, than five cents and find that you have
worthless varieties, five or six years hence, when they begin to

principled nurserymen, and charge you three times the value of
good stock in the bargain.
The "American Agriculturist" says: "By all means purchase of
reliable nurserymen, that you may be sure of good stock and true
The "Country Gentleman" says : "Buy your trees of a nursery-
man who has established his reputation."
